To facilitate the dissemination of findings on psychologically relevant aspects of the COVID-19 crisis, the Association for Psychological Science and SAGE publications have joined together to fast-track the publication of articles in Psychological Science that deal with COVID-19.
As always, Psychological Science welcomes the submission of papers presenting original research, theory, or applications on mind, brain, or behavior. Preference is given to papers that make a new and notable contribution—an idea, a discovery, a connection—to psychological science, broadly interpreted, and that are written to be relevant for and intelligible to a wide range of readers. These standards will not change. What is new in response to the crisis is that Psychological Science makes the commitment to expedite the peer review process for COVID-19 related submissions.
As well, pre-copyedited manuscripts will be posted on SAGE’s site immediately upon acceptance and then will be replaced with the final version once it is ready. By taking these steps, APS and Psychological Science will speed dissemination of information that will help us deal with this unprecedented crisis. Best wishes for good health.
